    Carved Pipes – Some Examples

    Posted by [CMD]
    If anybody has finished pipes, personal finds or not, that you would like to show us, please feel free to do so here. I love pipes and I'm sure most all of us do.

    I'll start with a rare item for New England, a steatite platform pipe found near Wickford, RI in 1887.

    The label is mine, replacing the original, which fell off (I did save it). Guess I should have used better ink. These date Early to Middle Woodland and may reflect Adena/Hopewell influence.

      Awesome pipe and a good thread. I can't wait to see the different types from all around. Here is one my buddy and I found in Riley county Kansas 3years ago on the fourth of July. In the pouring rain. Wow.
      I don't have any good pics of it in the sunlight. Maybe I'll get up early tomorrow and snap a few pics if its sunny.

        Here is a clay pipe, ex-Roland Engstrom collection, and found in Marshfield, Ma. The very end of the stem is restored. If you look at the stem end in the first photo, you can see a color difference representing the restoration. Rest of pipe is solid. 21 tally marks around the bowl. I was told it reflects Iroquois influence and dates from about 1500 AD.

            Here's a stone pipe from Gallia Co., Ohio. No idea on material. An obtuse angle pipe or could we also call it a type of platform pipe?

            Just a thought, but I think Travis's bird pipe deserves its' own thread. IMHO, it's one of the best personal finds ever posted to this forum and should be seen by as many members as possible!!

            That's a really nice thing to say. Thank you. I posted this pipe a 2 years ago and was surprised it only got six replies. Oh well.
            I wish I could have been the one who picked it up. But I'm proud to have been a part of its discovery. And ultimately part of its preservation. A partial owner, more or less a baby sitter. But the owner of a memory I won't forget.
            This thread has encouraged me to get better pics in the sunlight. I woke up a little earlier to get some early morning sunlight. here u go. Thanks for all the really kind words.

                  This pipe has been shown a few times b4, i found it in the river in 2 feet of water. it has been the subject of yays and a few nays.
                  some are saying it represents the carolina parakeet, others say a turtle with bird body.to me it don t need a COA. it always WOWS!! all the know everythings at the shows. it is and will be known as "The Laswell GREAT Pipe". where ever it might end up or whoever gets it . it will always have my name, which is not a common name, attachted to it. i think it is on its way to The Artifact Company to get its checkup. i am glad i found this pipe, because, if i had nt i woulda never met a bunch of good guys on here. guys i may never see, but can still say they are my buds. listening to all of you, and seeing the stuff you find daily makes me want to do the same. even if i never find another artifact in my life, i know i did find a place to go and just talk about stuff with guys just like me. thanks for all the knowlege and just good times here.

                  found in ANDERSON ,INDIANA

                    Just reading up on "Great Pipes" in Hothem's Indian Pipes book(1999). Range from 6-7" to over a foot, usually depict birds.

                    thanks.. most of fort ancient, and the tubes are adena.. these are mostly local pieces, a few from fox fields.. The skull was a local found here in Greenup co KY my friend found it in a rock house.. alot of pipes, some clay some stone were found in that shelter.
                    that piece is probably mississippian.. I got some more pipes.. I'll take some more pictures.. I got a pipe that weights 36 lbs a mississippian effigy frog block pipe that was found really close to were the skull pipe was found.

                        This black one is a Chlorite pebble thet was drilled to make a hole for the bolw and the stem. Nice material but they just wanted to smoke I guess and made it utilitarian. Noty much elaboration on that one.

                          I love pipes, especially pre-Contact pipes. I need to get all of mine in one place and make some good pics, but here's one pic I have on my desktop. This is a group of Gregory Perino's personal artifacts. I bought the pipe from Greg, and he told me he had gotten it years ago in Tennessee from a friend who had found it, and it was one of his favorite pipes. It is made of polished steatite and is 4" long by 3" high. Perino said on his paper that it was Copena, appr. 1000 AD.
                          The other relics are a Muskogee OK boatstone damaged by fire, a nice slate Late Woodland atlatl weight from St Clair Co IL, a a nice little Scallorn that Perino found in western OK
